Otavalo Market & Condor Park (Otavalo)

On this full day excursion we’ll see the hustle and bustle of market life, and appreciate the natural beauty of the Andean flora and fauna.

After free time for lunch, we will visit Condor Park. With beautiful views over the city of Otavalo as the backdrop, you’ll learn about the work of this non-profit organization, whose vocation is to protect, rescue, rehabilitate and re-introduce to the wild raptors, vultures (the Andean Condor) and owls. We’ll enjoy a display of falconry seeing the magnificence of these birds in flight.
